GUSTY ELDERLY WOMAN DRAG 15 M ON ROAD BY SNATCH THIEVES

PETALING JAYA, Malaysia — A 76-year-old woman was dragged on the road for 15 metres during an attempted snatch theft  in front of onlookers here yesterday.
The 45-second video of the incident that occurred in broad daylight was caught on a dashboard camera of a car.
Two suspects were arrested hours later.
Residents told Malay Mail they were shocked that a snatch theft could occur in a heavily congested street in Taman Paramount.
The attack on the senior citizen brought back memories of Tan Kim Chuan, 60, who died after she hit her head and was dragged a few metres in a similar incident in George Town, Penang in 2012.
A 37-year-old man is serving a 15-year jail term for causing Tan’s death.
The elderly have become easy targets of snatch thieves, mainly because they do not put up a struggle. But in this case, gutsy Seow Wah Yin, never let go of her handbag.
The former Malaysian Meteorological Department officer survived the incident with light injuries to her body and received treatment at a nearby clinic.
Seow was waiting to cross the busy road at about 10.20am when two youths  on a motorcycle closed in on her.
